Situated in north London and famous for being the home of the first shopping centre of it's size, Brent Cross still retains this same 'shopping mecca' reputation today. With more than 100 stores and cafe's there's plenty to keep any shopping enthusiast busy! Aside from Brent Cross's main attraction (shopping!), there are several other things to do in the area including a visit to the RAF Museum to swot up on your aviation history! If it's peace and quiet that you are looking for and a break from retail therapy, Hampstead Heath is nearby with enough green space to really feel like you have escaped the city.
